Discover Dsquared2 creative directors Dean and Dan Caten 24 hours in Tokyo and Shanghai. “Every time time we travel to Asia we have an amazing experience. Tokyo and Shanghai are both unique yet so different at the same time! They give us a common positive vibe and are a constant source of inspiration. Their cultures and styles are always forward thinking! We could not miss this great opportunity and very special creative adventure!”. – said Dean and Dan Caten. Always on the go and never stopping, two intense days packed with events and special projects first in Tokyo and after in Shanghai. In Tokyo, the designers filmed a special video with the explosive duo Ayabambi: amazing choreographies showcasing the Dsquared2 punk kilts. Great music, incredible dance moves and beautiful looks all contributed to create an incredible film! Going around with a Rolls Royce car, they continued the day with a special shooting with Katsumi Nakamura, a local swimmer rising star. Sporty, Competitive, strong and stylish… matching perfectly with the brand! Dean and Dan Caten had a great time! At 8pm, a beautiful night started: a private dinner at UKAI, where the guests enjoyed an exquisite and sophisticated Japanese cuisine in an intimate atmosphere. The dinner could not end without dancing in the ARC club, one of the most exclusive spots in town! The industry’s most distinguished media, socialites, bloggers and VIP customers celebrated with Dj Mr Tikini and DJ Tommy in a truly off the charts DJ battle. #24HOURSINTOKYO That was not enough for the Canadian Duo! The Catens’ quick Asian tour carried on with a mind-blowing visit in Shanghai. After a beautiful welcome from the Westing Hotel and a typical Chinese lunch, they spent their time doing interviews and shootings with the local press. In the afternoon, lovely moments with Joey Young, one of the most powerful singer and actress in China. Beautiful girl with a great sense of Humor! At 8pm, everything was ready for the magic night: private dinner at M1INT, one of the most breath-taking locations in Shanghai. Top floor, fascinating view, luxurious décors and tasty dishes. The Chef personally customized a special menu normally served at Ceresio 7, the exclusive pool-restaurant in Milan. All the guests sipped on special drinks like Ceresio 7 Spritz and Vodka Cranberry. The atmosphere was stylish and elegant and the night continued with a special party in true Dsquared2 fashion. All the guests had fun with the designers dancing to the beat of DJ Casio. #24HOURSINSHANGHAI “Thrilling few hours! Time goes by quickly when you are having fun!
